Summary
Reassesses the Bible as the single most important influence in Western art and literary tradition, rejecting both literal and dogmatic interpretations of the Bible and discussing the ways in which it differs from other epic literature and the sacred texts of major world religions
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
An examination of the influence of the Bible on Western art and literature and on the Western creative imagination in general. Frye persuasively presents the Bible as a unique text distinct from all other epics and sacred writings. “No one has set forth so clearly, so subtly, or with such cogent energy as Frye the literary aspect of our biblical heritage” (New York Times Book Review). Indices.
